Not all desert plants are cacti: this is an agave, a succulent, I learned.
My major supervisor Barb, dressed to match and crouching next to a cactus.
Part of me doesn't even believe that these things are plants.
So strange. I won't easily believe that it is a plant, but I'll believe that it is a small fuzzy sentient life form from another plant.
Proof that I was really there! And not wearing winter clothes!
